Video Overview

What is the VNUS closure recovery time? One of the great advantages of VNUS closure is the very quick recovery time particularly compared to vein stripping. Typically we do all of our cases under local anesthetic with no sedation so that our patients are able to walk right out of the office and drive themselves home or back to work. In fact, VNUS closure patients often only take a half day off work and 100% of the patients are back to work in less than a day. It's a very easy operation to get over.
